You seem to have missed the word "migrate" in my post.
I see. I thought you were talking about the current thread, not some
hypothetical migration of some other thread.
Hallam-Baker started the current thread to complain about sarcasm and
intimidation relating to anti-spam efforts. And there clearly is
intimidation. The current thread did not migrate; hence I mistook your
comments as being somehow relevant to the current thread.
It is too bad you didn't take the opportunity to clear up the ambiguity of
whether you want the IETF to stop work on spam issues.
